Hello & Happy Saturday!!





In the midst of grad classes, my first non profit event this weekend, volunteering at the hospital, and finishing up a dessert e-book.. I thought I would share a quick post, for a SUPER quick recipe.. that is well.. 



Beyond super!



As someone who was never into spice, perhaps it stems from someone giving me one of the hottest asian peppers and telling me it was a carrot, I’ll leave the rest of that story to your imagination, whatever the case.. I never really enjoyed the sensation of my mouth being on fire while simultaneously trying to enjoy my food.. lol


Until now.. 







After jumping on the bandwagon, I felt I hate to explore Siracha.. since the world is oversaturated with just how glorious it is. Today, I finally get it! Siracha is actually very versatile and can be used in a myriad of recipes!


If you love easy recipes (the only ones I do) that are affordable, a lil sweet, a lil spicy, and all in all superb


This recipe will be your new best friend… 






Why this recipe rocks: 





Minimal Ingredients

Great for entertaining 

Great for gifts
